9:34 am
later, cold front, up towards chicago, trailing the cold front, very severe thunderstorms alabama, they had potential tornadoes this morning this will come waltzing through later. that will bring a round of showers, they will not be terry heavy but as this front moves in temperatures will warm into the 40s. we will get to melt off ice. cloudy skies early freezing rain will give way to afternoon showers, 45 daytime high, 5 to 10 could be an early shower night, clear out overnight not concerned with refreezing temperatures upper 30s to 40s. there is your 5 day forecast, tomorrow beautiful, sunshine, 54 degrees, yeah, that is 10 degrees above where it should be. 47 wednesday, could be more showers thursday, notice temperature trend this week, actually well above normal, not a bad looking forecast for end of january, that is a look at weather tony back to you. >> thank you. millions of americans are living with type 2 diabetes, what if there were a surgery to
9:35 am
wipe outer the disease literally overnight. tvs dr. oz is exploring that in a series called the most under explored, surgery you should be getting. dr. denise bruiner joining us. thank you for coming in. >> my pleasure. agastric bypass surgery, obviously people have been doing this to control their weight or lose weight and all that kind of thing but now, what we know, one of the benefits is it reverses type two diabetes. >> i know as astounding as that is within days. because what happens, as the stomach is rerouted, basically, so a hormone that produces hunger is eliminated, also, as parts of the small intestine are bypassed in the surgery, then food gets dumped in an area that produces hormones that make you feel full but
9:36 am
increase sensitivity to hormone insulin. so people do lose weight within days because it is just a smaller pouch you know a smaller container, but, that really did not explain really the reversele of type two diabetes, it was independent of the weight loss. >> do we understand it better now. >> we do now understand appropriate candidates must be selected this is not just i got diabetes i will have gastric bypass you have to fit certain criteria. >> what might that be? >> your weight be about 80 bounds over what it should -- pounds what it should be, body mass index of 35, when you have respiratory problems, sleep apnea for example or a body mass index above 40, which means you are about 100 pounds over weight, alone. and what we see, is when you've had diabetes for 5 years or
9:37 am
less, really, this is really a life changing procedure if you have diabetes more than 10 years, take insulin the outcome isn't as profouncertainly it is improved. >> sill the candidates who are best for this procedure will naturally be over weight candidates, not like anyone else who has type two diabetes can walk in and say i want this. >> right but 80% of type two diabetics are over weight. you have to understand these candidates must be screened appropriately, go through psychological counselling, understand exercise is part of this, understand nutrition is also a part of this, because you can trick that bypass overtime, and what we have to understand too, they have to try in earnest to lose weight with medical management we have medical physician, bariatric physicians who help people
9:38 am
individualize treatment they have to try first and then have failed at that. >> so is this something we are going to start to see happening? do doctors or medical centers have programs in place now are they starting to put them in place to screen people and to advice them on how they might be able to take advantage of this surgery in this way? >> absolutely there are centers of excellence that provide appropriate personnel who help to screen people, help create and post surgery but as a medical physician i follow people a lot after surgery and before to help those who are not candidates to attain a good goal and modify their risk factors for other diseases. >> we have to say, i mean this is still major -- i know there have been changes in the surgery that have made it safer over the years but this is major surgery. >> you better believe it. okay there is inherent risks that suberously the one -- obviously the one risk is death although it is low less than 1%
9:39 am
but that can happen regular complications of surgery like blood clot, infection, pull monoair em boll limp, blood -- earl bollism, blood clots in the legs, there may be a leak around the area of the surgery that can be life threatening there are other thing that is do go on understand it is not something without risk although the risk under careful guidance has been mitigated. >> it is not a quick, easy fix. >> no, not a quick easy fix you have to work with it and continue over a lifetime. >> okay dr. bruiner will be on the dr. oz show later on today, talking more about this if you want to find out more thanks for coming in >> my pleasure thank you. >> alison back to you. up next super star couple calling it quits plus her father stars in a number of comedies but she doesn't want his help with her singing
